John’s Rant: What to rant about?

Fresh from a vacation that was not nearly long enough nor a complete vacation from electronics.

Clean Up Zombie Users

The Lowdown:
An older plugin but can be very useful if you need to clean up a site full of spammer registrations. It works pretty nicely and simple. Keep in mind it just bulk erases users based on if they have made a comment or post. Do not use on a commerce site as those users do not make posts.
rating 3 Dragons

Bulk Delete

The Lowdown
A much better way to clean up everything this allow you to choose separate things to delete, posts by category, tags, custom types and more. It also has the ability to schedule deletes. Remove data by dates all in all pretty good.
Rating 4 Dragons

Simple Login Log

The Lowdown:
Needed for the above plugin. This tracks all user activity for post creation and creates a log making it easy to delete stuff. Also good to know who is login on your site and when.

Blazing Charts
https://wordpress.org/plugins/blazing-charts/

This purpose of this plugin is to let you get the most out of charting libraries that already exist and are awesome. There are many of them out there, and most of them are free. Many of the other commercial libraries are free for a personal or non-profit project, or have a free branded version, which may have a small link to their website.Rating: 5 out of 5

Custom Background Per Page
https://wordpress.org/plugins/custom-background-per-page/

This plugin allows users to set a custom background on a per-post basis. This plugin hooks into the WordPress custom-background theme feature and overwrites the values on single post views if the post has been given a custom background.Rating: 4 out of 5

John’s discussion this week about a project.
 
Discussion about the issue when cron jobs go bad and how to clean up the mess (note does require going into database.)
When you find that your cron jobs have gone bad and it happens from time to time. Not sure what happened to a site I mange but it kept overloading for no apparent reason and in the process of going though and cleaning it up I found that it had several hundred cron jobs built up as well. So in investigating how to clean this up I found there is no real plugin that will help here and you have to roll up your sleeves and get to work.
 
You need to get into your database and remove them, to do this you need to access your database search for the word ‘cron’ then when you fins it look in the options table find the ‘cron’ line click it and the when opened delete the info. After words the system will rebuild the proper cron jobs again.
